    Default you can now check your driving license online. (UK)

    did not know were to put this so thought cars but it refers to any vehicle
    Might be worth noting to tell people that you can now check your driving license online.

    I only realised the other day my licence had expired 2yrs ago, I new there was an expiry date on it but thought it was a much longer period than 10 yrs.
    It is printed clearly on the license but it had never entered my head to check until one of my mates mentioned it.

    Possible £1000 fine if you get rumbled by the police aswell, I think that's the case for wrong address to.....

    Thanks to JONNYG

    Mine is also out of date. I recently updated my passport, so it should have been a breeze to update the driving licence online. But... the .gov site didn't like me. I really need to do it.

    If you look at the post office website, certain larger post offices are able to take your picture and digitize your signature and electronically send that to DVLA for £4.50 - I did it last Saturday and got my new license Thursday of this week.

    I'm fairly sure that when I renewed mine they used my passport photo that they already had on file.

    Loads of our drivers in work have been caught out by their licences expiring. We've had the police turn up a few times and interview them. I don't think anyone from our place has had a fine yet though.

    I don't think they use an existing photo unless maybe replacing a lost Licence which is still in force. It's a shame they don't allow us to use our webcams and approved software though. .

    .

    They do. But when I try to do online, I get an error. I'll renew it at some point.

    if you use the passport picture that they have on file, your photocard licence will only be valid for the remaining life of your passport.

    ie, if your passport was renewed 5 years ago and you do your license renewal online using the passport details, your license photo will only be valid for 5 years - whereas if you do it with a new photo it will be valid for the full 10 years
